HOUSTON -- An apparent love triangle between three doctors turned into what sounds like a script from a movie of the week.
One doctor is now facing criminal charges after police say she broke into the home of her romantic rival last weekend.
Doctor Angela Siler-Fisher is the medical director at Ben Taub Hospital’s Emergency Center and is also a professor at Baylor College of Medicine.
Siler-Fisher now stands accused of a bizarre crime in an upscale West University area neighborhood.
According to documents, Siler-Fisher broke into a home there by kicking in a doggy door. Once inside, she allegedly used lipstick to write ‘whore’ and ‘homewrecker’ on the woman’s mirror.
Sources say Siler-Fisher’s husband, Brandon Fisher, called the other woman to let her know that his wife was on the way.
The woman reportedly left the home with her kids before Siler-Fisher got there.
Law enforcement sources told KHOU Siler-Fisher also left a trail of unused condoms up the woman’s staircase.
She’s then accused of calling the woman on her way out and threatening to “beat her”. Documents allege Siler-Fisher texted the other woman 25 times over the next 16 hours.
“It’s totally out of character,” said Siler-Fisher’s neighbor Chris Pancheri.
Siler-Fisher lives less than three miles from where she allegedly committed the crime.
Pancheri, who calls Siler-Fisher a friend, believes she must’ve had good reason to snap.
“Most people’s reaction would be a lot bigger than that one,” said Pancheri. “I thought the other woman got off easy.”
Prosecutors don’t see it that way.
Siler-Fisher was arrested on charges of criminal trespass and harassment. She has since posted bond.
According to documents, a surveillance camera captured Siler-Fisher coming and going from the other woman’s home.
“She’s probably the most sane person in this neighborhood that I know. She’s an extraordinary doctor from what I know, great wife and mother,” explained Pancheri. “She’s a great woman.”
Baylor College of Medicine released a brief statement following news of Siler-Fisher’s arrest:
“We understand that this is a private matter for Dr. Fisher and does not impact her work at Baylor College of Medicine.”
Siler-Fisher could not be reached for comment Wednesday night.
